What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great buy I’ve had my L.G for over 5 years and never once do I regret buying it, It feels like my room is at 30 degrees,when it’s 95 degrees outside. The specs are right on, I even close off my room in order to cool down then I open up my daughters room. Definitely recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life Saver I bought this unit a couple of months ago when my home system went out on a Friday evening on one of the hottest days of the year. I couldn't get to a parts house to get replacement equipment for my home until Monday. My wife and I was suffering so she said "honey home depot has small window units let's just get one and put in the bedroom, at least we can sleep cool". She is so smart! Well I got to HD as they were closing ad this unit was right up front. Took it home and had it in the window running within 20 minutes. It cool the room within 30 more minutes. It works great and was worth every penny!!! Saved my marriage, life and love life!! :-). This little unit is a work horse and I am a licensed HVAC Tech.

Does the LG Model LW5016 take air from the outside to cool the inside?? Lately there has been lots of smoke outside our state for the cause of Fire in other states. And having children, I'm very concerned if I should trust turning on the A/C in our room.

Asked by: Yenifer
Hello, the unit circulates air from the room back into the room. However, the unit is not air tight and depending on how the unit was installed will depend on how much outside air can get inside. ^AC

I have a lg lw5016 air cooler does it need water

Asked by: Rodrigotellez
We appreciate your interest in this air conditioner. There is never cause to add water to this air conditioner. It should also not require checking the amount of water in the machine, as the water that has been extracted from the humidity in the air will be re-used by the machine to enhance efficiency of the cooling process.

Can you install this unit in a wall

The LG 5000 BTU Window Air Conditioner, Model # LW5016 is a Window Air Conditioner and as such, a standard single-hung or double-hung window is required for proper installation. Non-window installations, including using sleeves, holes in walls, and other installations are not recommended...^IFV

How do you tilt this ac? The pan that holds water is full and water comes out of front grill and it makes noises. I tried to tilt but the brackets on bottom that holds the curtain is in the way. Again I put it in and it will not tilt.

Asked by: Bart22
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this air conditioner. If this machine has been installed properly, it should already have the proper tilt to the cabinet to allow all moisture to drain out of the back of the cabinet.
